UK PAL Nintendo 64 kiosk demo units; Information and pictures of UK PAL Nintendo 64 kiosk demo units

Hello All,

I've been lurking on the site for some time but took the plunge tonight and registered as a new member.

I have been an N64 fan and collector since around the late 90s when I got my first console brand new for my birthday when I must have been around 10 years old.

My main reason for joining is the wealth of information and knowledge on this site.

I have become very interested in Nintendo 64 Kiosks and demo units, and there seems to be a lapse in information (or I just cannot find it), surrounding kiosk and demo unit information.

There seems to be a lot out there on the US kiosks with what I call the 'bubble' clear plastic cover over the console, but I can only find a handful of pictures of the U.K. Versions which seem to have a square cover and completely different illuminated top sign, controller arms and pretty much a completely different unit.

Link to the only one of 2 in the uk I've ever seen below,

I would love to know if any others exist, if there is any information of which stores in the UK that they were demoed/displayed in and all the other good stuff.

I also have seen that in the US there seem to be lots of Mario 64 variants, but nothing else. I have now seen a UK Zelda Ocarina of time Demo Kiosk, but never seen anything else that even comes close to this, and want to know more on variants too.

Any help or guidance for further information would be much appreciated great or small.

Thanks in advance and hello to all,

Bill, U.K.

Hello All, thanks for the welcome.

I knew people would reply in the end! Many thanks to all that have replied, it's great to get a conversation going.

Milage007 I would really appreciate that. I'm finding it so difficult to find information on these, so any snippet would be most gratefully received.

Kamikaze, thanks for the link. This is yet another different version, I'm guessing the Aus version. Shame it's missing bits as I'd imagine they would be very difficult to replace.

Keep the info flowing 😀

Kind regards,

Bill
